Criminal Defense

Response at the Prosecutor/Police Investigation Stage
With the rise of more complex and sophisticated business activities and social structures, initial responses at the prosecutor/police investigation stage of a criminal matter are crucial to defend one’s rights and lead such investigations into a just direction. Thanks to the extensive experience and expertise of our professionals, BKL gained a renowned reputation for providing the best solution for complicated criminal matters , by having garnered an endless list of significant results for our clients.

Response to Investigations by Non-Conventional Investigative Agencies
Non-conventional investigative agencies, such as the Financial Supervisory Service, the National Tax Service, the Korea Customs Service, the Fair Trade Commission, and the Regional Ministry of Employment and Labor, are actively conducting criminal investigations and their scope of investigation continues to expand. Our attorneys from the Criminal Defense Team work closely with our attorneys from other teams depending on the type of criminal matter and are, thus, able to seamlessly and comprehensively defend our clients’ positions.

Preventive Legal Guidance
The origin of a criminal matter can often be traced back to a minor issue which would not have escalated into a serious matter had it been controlled properly at the outset. Preventive legal guidance is therefore essential in order to avoid any potential legal implications from a criminal law perspective.

Compliance Monitoring
As the scope of corporate activities continues to expand and the types of doing business diversifies, the role and authority of investigative agencies has continued to increase simultaneously, resulting in strengthened regulations and government oversight. Hence, it has become essential for companies to implement in-house compliance monitoring systems. However, there is no clear standard to guide them. BKL’s professionals advise companies on the most effective and up-to-date measures to guide their in-house monitoring procedures in all areas of corporate activity, including IP security, tax and bribery.

Digital Forensics
Securing digital forensic evidence in intellectual property cases, such as industrial espionage, patent right or trademark infringement is imperative in determining the result of a criminal case. Taking advantage of our comprehensive know-how in digital forensics, BKL has the capacity to find critical evidence and thereby provides our clients with the key to solve their criminal issues.
